Apple has officially launched Apple TV, a media streaming device in India for the price of 8,295. Apple’s India website is already updated with the news, and one can find Apple TV under iPod section. With this launch Apple’s full portfolio of products are now available in India.
This device is not the rumored Apple television set, but a media streamer that lets you stream and share content from your Apple devices and from iTunes to your HDTV, and it can be connected through HDMI port.
An Apple spokesperson, who confirmed the development, said “Yes, we have launched the product. It will be out in our authorized resellers in the next seven to ten days,” reports The Hindu.
